Adagio equivalent

OK...
I've become a big adagio fan, but there is a tea or two that I really like, but I'm not sure that adagio carries an equvalent to. We'll start with my favorite green from MTW that they call Mao Feng Tranquility Green. The description from their website is below and is highly accurate to how I find the tea.

A premium Hairpoint style green from Eastern China, this tea embodies the reasons for drinking green tea. The dark green leaves of this tea are pointed and slightly twisted, producing a tantalizingly sweet brew with chestnut overtones that refresh.

Thanks!

Snots--

Thanks for the post.

Mao Feng is just a grade of tea (a high grade), so that's not much to go by..... Probably the closest we've got is a tea called Green Anji from the Zhejiang region of China (the "Eastern" part of China they may be referring to):

Hope this helps,
